Xavier reached the quarter final in Lyon after defeating Arnaud ClÚment 7-5, 3-6, 7-6 (6). He defeated Kucera in the first round.

He's playing against Bjorkman now.

You can do it Xavier! <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

Bjorkman should be a piece of cake. <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0"> Knowing Xavier, he'll thus probably lose <IMG SRC="smilies/redface.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

Wow, Xavier is a special guy... one time he plays terrible, the other time he's kicking asses.. Wish he could play on the same high level all year.

So, is he playing already? Anyone can post scores?

Oct 12th, 2001, 05:34 PM
They are still showing Ljubicic vs Gaudio <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0">
Third set just started there.

I hope they will still show Xavier-Jonas.

Thanks for the info, Sofie <IMG SRC="smilies/kiss.gif" border="0">

Oct 12th, 2001, 06:22 PM
Ljubicic-Gaudio is over (I didn't see who won)

Now they are showing Haas-Ulihrach <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0"> (Wenen)

So I guess we won't get to see Xavier <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0">

Oct 12th, 2001, 06:38 PM
Yeah, at last, they are showing Malisse! <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

He's leading 3-0 <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

Xavier won the first set 6-1 and is now leading 3-1 in the second.

He's playing extremely well. There's not a lot Bjorkman can do.

He just needs to stay concentrated now.

Oct 12th, 2001, 07:17 PM
Xavier holds easily 4-1.

Jonas retires. <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0"> He had already asked for treatment earlier.

Xavier wins 6-1, 4-1 (ret.)

Tomorrow semi final live at 3pm.

Oct 12th, 2001, 07:23 PM
In the semi's Xavier plays against Ferrero or El Aynaoui (please not again)

Oct 12th, 2001, 07:44 PM
Good luck in the semis Xavier! <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

Too bad Bj÷rkman was injured but Xavier was playing really well!

Oct 12th, 2001, 07:49 PM
Congrats Xavier!! <IMG SRC="smilies/bounce.gif" border="0">
He really played an excellent match! Good luck in your semi-final and go for that title!
I hope that if he plays El Aynaoui he can get revenge for his and Christophes loss in the Daviscup against him!! I really didn't like his attitude in his match against Christophe, he was really annoying. <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0"> (and I think most people in the crowd thought that with me while we were watching that match.)
Keep up the good work, Xavier! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Oct 12th, 2001, 09:43 PM
Wow, what a nice performance..

I just checked the results of Lyon, and the match Ferrero- El Aynaoui hasn't been played yet. I'm afraid it will be Ferrero... and he's good. But a good Xavier might win <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">


Oct 12th, 2001, 09:59 PM
El Aynaoui won 6-4, 6-4.

You have to win that match, Xavier. You have no choise <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

Oct 12th, 2001, 10:07 PM
REVENGE <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> !!!!!!!

Listen to Sofie, Xavier!

Is there a report about his last matches? Is he playing like the start of the season again?

Oct 13th, 2001, 07:46 PM
He lost! <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0"> 7-6 (5), 6-2
Good luck in your next tournament!

Oct 13th, 2001, 08:16 PM
Ouch... better luck next time Xavier!!!

Oct 13th, 2001, 09:38 PM
Oh... Xavier <IMG SRC="smilies/sad.gif" border="0"> Oh well, a better result than in davis cup, a close first set.

Good luck in Stuttgart now!

O.Rochus defeated Chang in qualies Stuttgart, Trifu (who's that??) is next.

Oct 13th, 2001, 10:37 PM
Good luck in Stuttgart Xavier! <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

Oct 14th, 2001, 12:28 PM

Good luck Olivier and Xavier! (Does Christophe play in Stuttgart too?)

Oct 14th, 2001, 12:31 PM
